Subject: More interesting!

Definitely the best of these four realtively boring show! But the other composite soundboard is better.

Subject: Thank GD for Playing in the Band
For me, this was the first time I saw Jerry after his coma so this show marks a very special evening for me. One thing about these shows that was different were the fact that the Neville Brothers were opening all four nights. Being the first night, I wasn't sure how the schedule was going to go and how long the Nevilles would play. No big deal except that I got a little greedy and downed my "enlightenment tablet" a bit early. I'm getting a good buzz going during the Nevilles set and it's not good. I like the Nevilles but NOT as a psychedelic band. I found myself peaking my brains out during the break between bands. Finally, things were getting a bit hairy so I closed my eyes and focused, trying to communicate with the boys that I need something strong from them right away. Needless to say, when the boys broke out "Playing in the Band" to open the show, I knew they'd got my desperate plea for help. My jaw was still dropped after the show.......I was one of those guys walking around trying to talk to people and tell them how I had telepathically communicated with the band but everybody just kind of stared and nodded. This version for that reason is my favorite Playing. The rest of show is very cool and loose.

Entertaining show. Decent sound.

If you turn the volume way up, you can hear someone (Billy, maybe?) say sarcastically, "Hey, Weir, let's do Playing in the Band again!" during the encore break. Classic.

...and listen to closing solo on Comes A Time. Unfortunately it is short, but Jerry packs in some of the most perfect picking he has ever performed. Absolutely beautiful!

Subject: Love this show
get the whole series, the drummers have figured it out.

the sound quality is variable for this show but worth it.

download winamp, media player for the computer, it has an equalizer and can clean up many of these great shows

Subject: OK Show & fair sound
I love the Playin' theme!!! 1st Set sound is better than 2nd. 2nd set treble is way up!!! (At times can give you a head ache, if not adjusted correctly when listening to it!!

P.S. 'Black Muddy River' is not separated from the "Dancin' in the Streets".

Subject: Great Bobby show! Bad file list.
From what I've heard so far, this is a strong show with great sound. The main problem is that Black Muddy River doesn't exist on the file download list, which in turn, screws up the song listings. EX: Blk Mddy Rvr is actually Playin jam, Playin jam is actually Miracle and Miracle is actually an extended drums not shown on the list at all. It's not recommended to puff before attempting this download.
2 stars because of the annoyance factor.
